This is just a post to let you all know how our last sale went. We got quite a few people along, not as many as we'd thought we would, but that's ok as it was a bit more relaxed than usual (which is a good thing). We still went home with a few lovely pieces (and some size 24 maxi dresses, Hannah) but we raised $4300!
So, thank you to those of you who ventured out of your lovely warm homes into the chilly spring weather to support a good cause. We've sent the ACRF about $24,500 over the last few years so I feel like bit by bit we're making a difference. Also, a bit cheers to Cam, Martina, Gordon, Emma, Bobby the Baker, Transit Clothing in Mt Lawley and Dee from Winifred & Bance for all of their help.
On the Thursday night before the sale, my Mum got off the phone with her brother and told us that the Non-Hodgkin's he'd had years ago, and beat, had returned. Fortunately, thank God, they removed all of the tumour and the results are looking very positive. It's absolutely amazing what doctors know and can do now thanks to the help of researchers. Without funds, research into cancer treatments and prevention isn't possible, so we thank all of you who support what we do so that we can support what they do.For Brian Brown, David Etchells, Keith Evans, Jill Selley, Gwen Symons, Taylor Bassett, and every mother, father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, son, daughter, grandmother, grandfather, wife, husband and love that has gone.

dream of sky

Dear ladies and gents,

It's time for our spring sale! This time round we dreamt up fields of flowers, blue sky as far as the eye can see and lots of pretty floaty things for our photo shoot (all taken by the wonderful Cameron Etchells). Here's a peek at some of the pics...
For more, check out our facebook page here. The sale will be held at the Mt Hawthorn Lesser Hall on the 18th of September from 2pm until we sell out. For more info and to R.S.V.P., go to our event page here.
Hope to see you there!

and now a word from our sponsors...

Or vice versa. We got a lovely post on our facebook page today from the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. Some nice person gave us a bit of a write up on their website telling people about Two Bucks. At the end of the article it said that we've raised almost $22,000 since our first sale in 2007, a fact that I found pretty encouraging. I haven't really kept a close track of what we've sent to the ACRF over the years but it's nice to know that the little bits have added up to something worthwhile!

So, thank you to all of you who support us so that we can support these amazing people and the work they do.

thank you!

Cheers to everyone who made it out in the yucky, cold weather on Sunday. We raised $3800 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation!

We've already begun collecting for our next sale that will be on in a few months time as we're hoping to make this one bigger and better than the last. In the meantime you can still get your vintage fix from local sales around town. There's a sale coming up in a couple of week's time, on the 6th of June, that you can get the details for here.

Until we meet again, take care and keep warm!

Two Bucks 'til Wednesday

The Tale of Two Bucks in Wednesday Woods

Check out the rest of our photo shoot, taken by the brilliant Cameron Etchells, at our facebook page!
Hope to see you there!

to the pole!

We've been a little quiet lately so I thought I'd let you know what's been going on. We've had some lucky trips out to Mandurah with lovely $2 clothing sale days at the shops off Pinjarra Rd. We've even found some amazing things at Zoila's and THAT'S sayin' something. As always, House Op Shop near the foreshore in Rockingham has provided us with armfuls of finds (and some really neat brass bunnies that Anna gave our Mum for Easter). Parish across from Rockingham City always has the sweetest old ladies so we recommend paying a visit there too.

We've got our plans for the next photo shoot so pictures will be posted by the beginning of may at the latest. Don't worry- none of those plans involve any of us being stretched to 6ft and losing 20 pounds so it'll be the same two bucks 'til wednesday-ness as usual.

AND we're heading down to Walpole this week where it's more than likely we'll do huge amounts of op-shopping and eating and playing Ligretto.
So, we hope you all had a lovely Easter break and fingers crossed we've got some rainy weather ahead of us!
Much love,

soon be wandering sale day

Hey Folks,

Thanks to everyone who came along last Sunday to help us raise just over $4100 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation. It was hot and sunny but people were lining up from 10am until the "doors" opened at 2! (Hopefully no one got sunburnt, eep!) Cheers to Emma from Dropstitch and Dani from Streetmuse who were there taking snaps of all the pretty people.

The racks were pretty much cleared out by 3pm and after packing up, Hannah, Martina and I went for a splash in the water fountain installation outside PICA. We could hear the kids screaming with laughter all day and had been looking forward to it from about 10am when we arrived, so it was a sweet, sweet victory.

A big thank you to Georgina Mavor at the Perth Markets for all of her help and being very lovely. Also cheers to Martina and Gordon for their crowd controlling and, of course, Bobby for his delicious cakey pops.

The next sale will be in about 3 months and we'll keep you posted here and on our facebook page.

Thanks again!
Sophia and two bucks 'til wednesday
